debate. the first time president obama and mitt romney have met in person in five years. tonight of course, they will share the stage in denver. a coin toss decided the order. president obama speaks first, mitt romney will have the last word. romney ran the gauntlet during the primary. he did 23 debates. the president has practiced five mock debates before tonight and it's not too late to convince voters, there's a new poll, florida and virginia virtually tied. in ohio, the president has a comfortable seven-point lead. last night, conservatives started circulating this video. a 2007 speech that then senator obama gave at hampton university, criticizing the federal response to hurricane katrina. >> people ask me whether they thought race was the reason the response was so slow. well, no, this information was color blind in its incompetence. >> in north carolina, joe biden went off script and said the middle class has been buried the last four years. this morning, they've turned a clip into a web video. >> the middle class in america is hurting. >> middle class has been buried the
with a president romney and foreign policy and next four years with a president obama foreign colorado. what do you foresee as the difference and where are they similar? >> oh, i think the difference will be significant. normally the republican and the democratic party have really within wibeen within the 40 yaro use a seasonal figure of speech. in the case of this president, we're not. he's way, way over in terms of the policy. governor romney without doubt understands that our country is exceptional. he recognizes the role we've played in the world. he believes the world is a better place if we're a participant in that world, and recognizes that it is not for us to go around the world apologizing and ringing our hands. what's called the arab spring is something happening in the islamic world. it's not arab only, because it's happening in a good many other countries as you know well. it's not spring, but it's summer and fall. it's going to be winter. it is a significant shift on the part of a lot of people in a lot of countries, who are encouraged and see the rise of islamist nonsecular forces in
to president obama for two years. >> no one in the united states, you know, less in japan and i hope in china wants to see shots fired over three or four uninhabited rocks in the east china sea. as long as we're concentrating on the sovereignty issue, we're probably not going to get anywhere. on the other hand, the resource issues can be addressed separately, without regard to sovereignty. >> bader says the u.s. government doesn't intend to mediate. he called on both sides to refrain from any action that could be considered a provocation. he argued the violent protests in china against japan's nationalization of the islands were counterproductive, unwise, and damaging to china itself. >> it made china look like an aggrieved third-world country that was not acting like an international community. >> japanese leaders say their claim to the senkaku islands dates back to 1895. chinese officials maintain their country was forced to give up the territory after losing the sino-japanese war. >>> the philippines and vietnam have appealed to the international community for a peaceful and legal resoluti
with barack obama, number one. and that what mitt romney has to do is convince people that four years from now a mitt romney presidency will be better for their personal lives. they understand on the likability question of which the president beats mitt romney so handily, they're not about to convince all these people suddenly to turn around and say, oh, we like mitt romney more than we like president obama. what they're going to try and do is say you like him enough and he can do the job and he's better able to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did bette
marks. telling reporters the middle-class has been buried over the last four years not even aware obama was leading the nation and robert gibbs said he was referring to damage the bush had caused. >> we had eight years of terrific decisions, wall street rate teeing its own rules that took place four years ago of which we had to dig out from each day. be clear. the middle-class was buried for a lot longer than we were dealing with bad economic decisions. lou: stephanie cutter contradicted trying to spin them out of the last four years telling another network we're absolutely not we made our predecessors by any means. three days after david axelrod and senior advisor told different stories of what the president knew of the terrorist attack in benghazi. less than 24 hours the president is in a debate with himself. of the daily caller uncovers a tape of senator obama june 2007 engaging in defense of class warfare rhetoric to a group of black ministers. take a look at his controversial remarks from his 2007 speech side-by-side with remarks less than one year later. >> special shout out to my
years of president obama will be more productive in creating jobs in the last four years. so both candidates have a great deal of work to do. the latest polling, derek, as you know, shows the race is tied up. shortly on the cbs evening news, we're going to talk to the president and mitt romney. >> the stakes sky high on this one. therefore the expectations have been ramping up by the hour. do these things live up to all that hype? >> sometimes they do, sometimes not. it depends. as you well know, there have been times, derek, that a single phrase in a debate such as this, has turned a campaign around or breathed new life into a flagging campaign. certainly that might be the kind of thing that mitt romney is eager to do tonight. but in the very first debate, their very first meeting here, i wonder whether both of them are going to play defense and get through the 90 minutes without making a mistake. we're going to see whether they come out on the attack or on defense. it's going to be fascinating. >> we know you will have topnotch coverage at 10:30 on cbs right here. we of cour
the republicans run was not a good preparation for general election this year. anyway, in swing states the obama campaign has bombarded voters, as you said, with this powerful ad going after romney for his 47% putdown. let's take a look. >> 47% of the americans who vote for the president who are dependent, who believe they're victims, who believe the government has to care for them, who believes they're entitled to health care, food, housing, you name it, and they will vote for this president no matter what. so my job is not to worry about those -- i'll never take care of them. they should take care responsibility and take care of themselves. >> you look at this analytical, only three or four breaks, romney would be ahead right now, breaks going to obama's side. the romney performance overseas when he blew that thing with cameron. the masterful performance by bill clinton where he reset the clock on the economy. of course, this 47%. these breaks have been going toward obama, haven't they? i mean, i can't think the last time romney got a break. >> reporter: no, really not since -- you have to go
mccain. this year, the kneilson company estimates more than 35 million watched president obama's speech at the democratic convention and more than 30 million governor romney's acceptance speech. but lots of people watching tonight may have already cast their ballots. early voting is underway in 10 states including the battleground of ohio. we have team fox coverage tonight. ed henry traveling with the president. first to campaign carl cammeron with the romney camp. carl, this is his big night. what's the thinking about the mood in that campaign? >> well, they kept mr. romney under wraps today in order to keep him focused. he had a very brief meeting with his senior staff and great deal today was actually spent with his staff. they don't want to leave it in the locker room they want him to come out and bring best game this evening. they are quite confident about it by virtue stepping on to the stage tonight as the challenger, mitt romney has the most to gain. they fully expect by virtue of standing next to the president there could be a bounce in the polls as a consequence of that. havin
energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. it has killed jobs. and the best course for health care is to do what we did in my state. craft a plan at the state level that fits the needs of the state and then let's focus on getting the costs down for people. >> mitt romney several times taking the fight to president obama. rarely did president obama take the fight to mitt romney. >> he wouldn't really engage with mitt romney. mitt romney would take him on on every issue, including the question of health care in massachusetts. you know, he didn't back away from it. to me, what's interesting about mitt romney this evening is that he's a very different mitt romney from the one we all watched during the primaries, the one we watched during the primaries was combative very often, without smiling, sometimes awkward, you know, tonight i think he sort of had it all together, focused on the president -- >> you agree his best debate performance? >> absolutely. >> i think mitt romney rose to a moment tonight, in a way frankly surpr
. not sure if it's lower than 50 years, which is what president obama said, but growth still slow, the verdict, this appears to be true, but we'll follow up with the kaiser family foundation on the 50-year claim. >> what else surprised you tonight? >> i think the president just didn't seem like he wanted to debate romney. again, never mentioned 47%, meaning mitt romney's critical, awful, remarks about obama supporters, never mentioned bain capital. he never said that i'm the guy that can create jobs and said that massachusetts was 47th of 50 states. >> you think he wanted to look presidential? wanted to let the campaign do it? >> if he did, said i'm ahead, i want to stay above the fray, that's a strategic mistake. >> van. >> when they say he wants to have a conversation with the american people, i think he thought he was going to go and have a conversation with the american people. i think i took romney too lightly, he didn't expect romney to be able to throw that kichb heat. and he was able to out obama obama on the connection piece, authenticity piece, on the ability to tell the
, the president was rusty. hasn't done this in four years. that's not an excuse as james said earlier. the obama campaign says that mitt romney doesn't care about your job or your community. we didn't hear anything like that from the president. romney at least held his own on the big questions of the economy and role of government. if you are the challenger and hold your own, you walk off the stage happy. >> critics of the president say he's two proffesorial. i think they'll say that tonight. >> and more. we have a horse race. mitt romney's performance was head and shoulders than anything we've seen before. >> you think this was his best debate? >> he drove this debate far more than anyone else imagined. mitt romney seized upon the opportunity and set the standard for it i think the president -- i didn't think he was rusty, as i don't think anybody has ever spoken to him like that over the last four years, and i think he found it not only surprising, but offensive. looked like he was angry at time. i think overall, you have to say -- to my surprise, i had not expected this. i think mitt romney w
for the fourth straight year. conventional wisdom saying that president obama should be losing, but there's a slew of national and swing state polls that show president obama building a small lead against republican rival mitt romney. joining me now, tameka simms, and lynn sweet. good afternoon to both of you ladies. >> hello. >> good afternoon. >> let's take a quick look at the polling here. president obama up by five in a fox news poll, six in a bloomberg poll, three in a politico poll, seven points in a "national journal" poll. why do you think that the president is edging out mitt romney in these polls, when the economic recovery has been so slow? >> well, it's a fairly complicated answer, and a lot of it has to do with voter attitudes towards the economy, less so than voter attitudes toward president obama or mitt romney. in many ways, voters have gotten used to the idea of a poor economy, even a lackluster one. and they've kind of gotten used to it. a quarter of the people who said the country was headed in the wrong track are still supporting the president. so they've basically got
night from the president why it is the next four years will be better than the last four years. >> reporter: the obama campaign admits it needs a change in strategy for the next two debates. president obama held back from attacking romney during the debate but that changed when he returned to the campaign trail. >> i almost got to watch out. >> reporter: the president attacked romney's plan to cut subsidies to pbs and his position was so different from what he said in the past he didn't recognize who he was debating. >> whoever was on stage last night doesn't want to be held accountable for what mitt romney has been saying in the last year. >> vice president biden gave the romney campaign another nugget to jump on. >> obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. yes we do. >> reporter: biden said the super wealthy needs to pay more. romney says that will kill jobs. another wild card in this race comes later this morning. the government releases its september unemployment report. experts see that jobless rate rising from the current 8.1%. >> we'll be talking about
the entire four years of the economy on president obama. they would know that average people understand, he came in with a huge burden, a collapsing economy, and they would have -- he would have said, look, the first two years, that was the problem of the president's predecessor. you can't blame him for that. but the last two years, that's obama's. there were ways for him to deal with it. but frankly, it was a very, very difficult legacy for, i think any republican, romney or anyone, to have to deal. >> the romney campaign said it wants to make the election about the economy, and initially it really tried to do that. but polls show that now americans, as you mentioned, tend to assign more blame to bush than to obama when it comes to that issue. 68% say bush should get a great deal or moderate amount of blame. 52% say the same thing about obama. did the romney campaign just, did they fail to take this into account, or did they just fail to address it properly? >> i think it's both, actually, right? i think that in the -- among a lot of republicans who supported george bush fervently in the f
night. i can't think of a debate in the 20 years covering this where the gap between the two candidates was this wide. mitt romney turned in a strong performance and the president turned in an uneven performance. the disparity led to a perception that president obama lost the debate. if you look at the commentary, not from the right, but people who love barack obama, almost every one of them, every pundit was saying that he lost. some saying he lost decisively. some saying he lost so badly, it could cost him the election. to me, it's hyperbolic. it speaks to the fact mitt romney changed the narrative of the campaign. >> what does it mean, jim, for mitt romney. if we accept he won the night last night, how does he make it about more than one night and a turning point in the campaign? >> i can't emphasize how big last night was for mitt romney. you have to view it from the mitt romney that came into the debate. conservatives were down on him. his staff were down on him. donors were reluctant to give money to him. most thought he had no opportunity to win the race. he comes out of the deba
over the last year. >> barack obama is a very effective debater. >> we know that governor romney has been practicing for months. i think the invasion of normandy took less preparation than he pult into the debates. >> he hasn't had a dedate against a democrat in over ten years, i guess probably 2002. >> i've never been in a presidential debate like this, and it will be a new experience. >> what can we really expect dpr next week's showdown in colorado? joining me is michael, special correspondent for "newsweek" and "the daily beast." everyone says this debate is an absolute must-win for mitt romney. isn't that kind of what we always say? isn't it always a do or die situation for one of the candidates? what's different this time around? >> the only thing that's different this time around, craig, is this is happening at an exact moment when it feels like mitt romney may be falling off the clip. he's got one leg dangling out over there. if he doesn't do something to collect himself and get back up on terra firma and head in the other direction he has a real problem. it's the timing of i
of barack obama's economic policies linking him to the weak economy that he has presided over four years. i say that because my sense, paul, there are a substantial number of voters. people lo say i think i'm going to vote for president obama. i don't feel that strongly about it, but i don't think mr. romney has made the case with me. i wish i could hear him out before i make up my mind. this is the opportunity to do that. >> paul: that obama narrative is disaster. don't let mitt romney who is just like george bush brings you back to the disaster and some people are buying that narrative. reluctantly because i think romney has not connected obama's policies to the pain they feel? >> forward looking, the president he would be and let him present to the people what the disaster would be in the second term for obama. what would be the case. he doesn't have to worry nice guy and all this. this is the only one and only chance. there is life after the presidency. he ought not to look back and say i didn't risk being an independent. >> paul: i didn't leave anything on the table. what are you heari
's done before, the status quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of president obama. we're not going to have four more years of obama. >>> wednesday, president obama and mitt romney meet in the first presidential debate. the news hours jim lehr moderates. watch and engage with c-span including the live debate preview at 7 p.m. eastern, debate at 9, and post debate, calls, reactions, e-mails, and tweets. follow our coverage on c-span, c-span radio, and online at c-span.org. now on booktv, peter takes about why our economy produces great wealth and great poverty at the same time. he offers suggestions on how to improve the conditions on tens of millions of americans living below the poverty line. this is about 50 minutes. >> well, thank you so much, debra. i am totally delighted to be here and thanks to busboys and poets for allowing me to be here, to talk with you, and, of course, thanks to all of you for coming. i see a lot of -- a lot of friends, some of my students are here. they already got their grades so no -- [laughter] nobody was threatened. this is -- we could sp
'donnell is my guest and prepared john mccain for hess debate with president obama four years ago and welcome to the show, good to have you here. [applause] >> what would you say mitt romney has to do more than anything else in order to go into that debate and come out the winner? >> at the top of the list has to be governor romney has to tie the poor economic conditions we find ourselves in right now to the failure of the president's policies. he's got to be able to litigate the case, make the case that the policies the president has put forward have caused the economy to continue to go down. because folks believe the economy's bad right now, but what they don't actually believe is that it's the president's fault. he is got to make that case in the debate with the president standing on the stage with him, that the president is the one to blame for the economy that we've got right now. >> mike: there's a little bit of delicacy going on. if he acts too much on the attack, it will look like he's showing disrespect to the president. if he doesn't go after him like you've said he'll look deferen
. president obama is a very gifted speaker. the man has been on the national stage for many years. he is an experienced debater. he has done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> chris: there were 23 debates during the primarys. >> people are going to see who is mitt romney and what kind of president is he going to be and what are the choices i have. that is what matters in this particular debate and all of the debates which is i know what president obama has done and all of the empty promises and broken promises and know about the ugly stagnant economy. what is mitt romney and paul ryan offering to get us back on track? and i think that is what we will get out of wednesday and if we get that out of wednesday then the country understands the choice they have to make. >> chris: i understand that governor romney plans to make a major foreign policy speech in the next few days. do the two of you think that the president has engaged in a coverup in his and the administration's escaped explanation of what happened at the u.s. consulate in beng
that are not going to work that fit with the narrative that we've had for years that obama is strong. >> can i grant you that and ask, what about the debate? a debate on foreign policy that will bring these issues into the forefront. >> i would love to see obama who really knows these issues from a firsthand fingerprints on the documents way, versus romney who has been multiple choice and really has no foreign policy background at all. >> as you were saying at the beginning, s.e., a case to be made for going into either of these directions, either embracing the foreign policy criticism, going at it hard, trying to use that as a broader frame to say the president is ineffective, or sticking with the economy. i think either decision has a rationale behind it. what struck me as you have, mitt romney today with an op-ed in the "wall street journal" going to give this foreign policy speech next week as the same time the campaign is saying they're not going to change their day to day message. you have them basically not really making a decision between either of those two courses. i think it comes back to

why the next four years under president obama would be disasterrous. shouldn't focus on the last four years. focus on next four years and what four more years of obama policy would look like and lay out romney alternative. and i think he needs to go right at obama. my main advice would be ignore the moderator. sort of like juan does with you. when one argues with me and ignores all your questions around all that. he has to take do not get -- do not answer jim lehrer. go after president obama and speak to him in the second person and say you have failed unfortunately and here is what we can do differently and make it a sharp contrast. >> chris: interestingly enough, liz, when i talked to congressman ryan about the fact that romney needs a clear victory because of the state of the polls he pushed back against that. does he need a clear victory? >> he does. i think there is universal consensus that he has to do something to shake up the trajectory of the race and a safe performance probably isn't going to be enough at this point. having said that i think it might not be that hard for rom
white americans voted for obama in 2008 and had voted for any democrat for president in nearly 40 years. obviously a lot of people and that hope. i think seeing him do it himself is what is so arresting about this video, but usually it is being pushed by white liberals. if you don't go for obama america is racist. that statement by romney. and they do it -- they don't care about the historic nature. otherwise they would have been supporting clarence thomas' nomination to the supreme court. they like him because he is the most left-wing president we have ever had, and they can defend his liberal policies by calling his opponents and critics racist >> i want to read the response to this video. they're calling it a desperate. in a transparent attempt to change the subject, his allies recirculated video of the 2007 event. the romney campaign believe that americans would accept the desperate attacks. it is they who are in for a surprise. your response? >> i love how the media, if this was available before, we never saw it. according to tucker carlson, the transcripts of the prepared remarks,
in obama's third year. she is 79 years old. she often says she wants to serve until she is 82 years old. that is one her idol served until. you know, she's a human being. she is a widow. she loves what she does and she's got it and she has the brains and the health to do it. she is particularly enamored of her new colleague, elena kagan, and her choice is to be the singer liberal on the supreme court,. >> so i think that she is going to be okay. [laughter] if obama is reelected and it is looking that way, i was not pandering, but i was making another one of our excellent productions. i don't think any of the conservatives will leave voluntarily. that is starting to be a pretty old court in justice kennedy and justice leah -- they are both 70 sixer sold. you know, you don't always get choice. i think that if romney wins, ruth bader ginsburg will try to hold on for the next four years. if obama wins, kennedy and scalia will try to hold on, but you never know what'll happen. >> can you speculate what was in roberts mind when he famously replied that the job of the justice was just [inaudib
doubled our spending under george bush. we continue to add during the obama years, but had to deal with the iraq and afghanistan wars and the bush tax caps -- cuts that were never paid for. the support president obama as are commanded -- commander in chief? do you believe he is the united states citizen? you accept the fact the columns of the christian? >>-- he called himself a christian? >> that was three questions. i will say, of course barack obama is our commander in chief. i wish he were a stronger commander in chief. >> to you believe in the? >> let him finish, please. you posed the question. >> i wish he were a stronger commander in chief. in recent weeks, we saw the tragedy of the assassination of -- >> let him finish. >> ok. >> they are simple questions. >> i.n.d. stand you would like to put meat on the cross examination stage. if you would like a -- >> i'll give you about 20 seconds, then we will move on. >> i wish she were a stronger commander in chief. the last few weeks, we saw our ambassador to libya assassinated in an organized action by al qaeda on september 11. his
to run against president bush, he should have ran four years ago. >> four years ago, barack obama and john mccain faced off in a first debate that was nearly canceled when the republican suspended his campaign because of the meltdown on wall street. the day of their second debate, the stock market dropped 500 points. >> now the troubles are spreading. the market took another dive today, and there are some big names now involved. >> reporter: the day of the third debate, the stock market dropped over 300 points. >> fear that the country could be entering in one of the most serious recessions in decades, led by wall street's 700-point sell-off. >> now four years later, the president who faced john mccain in those debates and beat him faces his new republican challenger for the first time. >> i'm looking forward to head to head. >> an mirror image of '08, a campaign is chaotic mash. new issues, new controversies, every day. the polls are bad for romney and good for obama in the swing states. but the national numbers are as tight as they get. the primaries are over, the conventions ar
romney's been saying for the last year. >> president obama cannot rewind and unleash that last night at the podium? but the way he and his opponent's campaign have adjusted their tactics in moving on from last night's debate tells you more about where the campaign is going from here than any dial test you saw during last night's debate. that's next with jonathan alter.

[ all ] i'm with scottrade. >>> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago. that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle-down government, would work. >> that was one of the very few lines that stoo
as president obama. he's been vice president in for four years. had a lot of things going. been a long time since he's debated. paul ryan has been in the cut and thrust of congress, to be better prepared. however, ryan is in the shoes president obama was in last night and the expectations are high for ryan. i think most people feel that paul ryan will walk joe biden's dog in this debate, and that's a down for him. i would venture that the vice presidential debate may get the largest audience of any vice presidential de debate we've had so far. >> in 2008 with the introduction of sarah palin was the first time the vice presidential debate was ever the highest 01:39:43:rate ed debate. we have this again. >> governor romney, last night, people say he mangled the truth to put it gently. the obama campaign -- they did a smart thing today. got up bright and early this morning realizing they took a loss last night and began pointing out where governor romney had not said what he said before, had not stuck to the truth. however, we learned again last night, if we needed reminding, that there's powe
to 35-year-olds. those that had hope and dreams who voted for obama four years ago. they're seeing their economic futures decimated. there is a lot of people look at the overall picture, foreign policy, domestic policy, energy prices, job market, debt situation and something is not on track. that's what we're seeing. bill: this also stand out too. in our polling. when asked, which candidate would likely take the lead on world events, keep in mind what is happening with libya and throughout the arab world, governor romney is at 52%. president obama is at 36%. what explains that? >> i think it is explained explicitly what happened over last several weeks with libya and egypt and 30 other capitals where our embassies were targeted for attack. let's get blunt. no way to sugar coat this. we have been flat-out lied to. they know they lied. as if airplanes crashing into the world trade center said those were just accidents. anybody with two eyes and iq of plant life knows what happened in libya was not spontaneous reaction to a 13 minute video on youtube. it was a planned orchestrated att
's travelled to the state 44 times since he took office this year alone in 2012. president obama has been to virginia 15 times already and has is not done yet. >> he wants to win virginia, for sure. tom fitzgerald in the newsroom. thank you. >>> mitt romney responding to thjobs report and called the rate insignificant and said this is not what a real recovery looks like. the numbers are deceptive and the president's made the economy worse. >> looks like unemployment is getting better. the truth is, if the same share of people were participating in the workforce, today or on the day the president got elected, the unemployment rate would be around 11%. that is the real reality of what is happening out there. >> mitt romney is on the campaign trail tonight in florida. so how are the new job numbers impacting the race for the white house? jack burkman and democratic strategist gary nordlinger from george washington school join us. thank you for being here. >> good afternoon. >> the fact that the unemployment rate fell below 8% the first time since the president took office should give them a
night. when mitt romney beat president obama in last night's televised debate. so the first televised presidential debate that we had was in 1960. here are all of the other years that we have since have televised presidential debates. every four years now we have these debates on tv. the only years, though, so these are all the years, right, right? the only years, though, in which you had an incumbent president running against a challenger in all of the years we've had presidential debates on tv are these years. so in terms of understanding the historical context of what happened last night when mitt romney beat president obama in this first debate, this is the universe of like things to compare it to. this is how to understand it in terms of american political history. it's only these years right here. that's it. now, by definition, you never have an incumbent president in this situation more than once. presidents can only serve two terms so there's only one opportunity when they carry into that debate, when they're running for re-election, they carry into that debate the gravitas of
is improving. republicans say after nearly 4 years in office president obama has not lived up to his promises the and as the election draws near the candidates are laser focus on job creation in their campaign pitches. >> we have a different view about how to create jobs and prosperity. this country doesn't succeed when only the rich get richer. >> i want to keep taxes down on small business so we can create jobs. this is about good jobs for the american people. >> reporter: when asked who would best handle unemployment, voters surveyed in a cnn orc poll taken before the week's debate picked romney by a 51- 45% margin over obama. today's numbers will be especially scrutinized because after this there is just one more jobs report expected before the november election. in washington, i am emily schmidt. >> the job report the numbers are due out by 8:30 this morning. >> claims are up about 367,000 americans filed for first time unemployment benefits last week. that's 4,000 more than the week before. those numbers are important because they serve as an indicator to how healthy the job market is o
the election. >> we cannot afford four mario's of barack obama. >>-- we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. >> the good news is we probably would not go over the fiscal cliff. congress will hammer out some kind of a deal between november 6 and the end of the year. >> how close are we to that kind of plan? >> a group of senators have come together to try to hammer out some kind of a deal. if that were to happen, congress would put off those tax hikes and spending cuts that are supposed to go into effect next year and institute for dollars chilean in savings by making cuts to some federal programs -- $4 trillion in savings by making cuts to some federal programs. >> thank you, hallie jackson. >> the american league east crown is still up for grabs. it was a tight game between the orioles and the tampa bay rays. chris giminez takes wei-yin chen out. chris davis continues to swing a hot bat for the o's. hort.he o's come up s they are now one game behind new york. comes too late tiebreaking game, tickets for that game go on sale today. season ticket holders can buy them between 10:00 a.m.
obama as a president for four years. there's not much room on his canvas to paint. mitt romney? he's still got a little space left on his canvas. he can show us where he would lead us. >> just how much debate prep will president obama and romney do over the next few days? >> this is really crunch time, right? the president is already headed to las vegas. he has a rally there tonight and will spend the next several days doing debate prep out there in nevada which is, of course, a key battleground state. he'll be with john kerry who is representing romney in his sessions. we're told romney heads out to colorado tomorrow. he'll be practicing with ohio senator rob portman. portman is playing president obama in these debates and it's all leading up to wednesday's big night. fred? >> thanks very much in washington. don't miss the big debate. you can watch it here live on cnn, 7:00 p.m. eastern time. >>> the chief justices will formally kick off a new term on the agenda, some of the most complicated issues of our day. here now is joe johns. >> reporter: right after the supreme court's hea
as you remember he was the pastor for then senator obama for 20 years and had some sermons that were pretty explosive against israel and america saying hiv was created to go after black communities and other things. for the obama campaign that's a negative thing. does it factor into this debate? probably not. bill: you were inside the debate hall yesterday. give our viewers a sense of the setup you saw. what will they see tonight? >> reporter: it's a relatively small auditorium. the area is very familiar. if you remember presidential debates in years past in 2008, the podiums right next to each other standing -- the moderator sitting at a desk in the front. it's pretty intimate. red, white, and blue. and you will see a lot of back and fourth in a small area. you are going to see what happens in the first 30 minutes is going to be crucial. because really all the experts will say you can win it in the first 30 minutes. you can lose it in the 90 minutes. bill: debate number one in 2008 had 50 million viewers. and it ticked up higher with each debate after that at the presidential level.
debate that barack obama had was four years ago. and the people he's used to sparring with are reporters. >> how did he prepare? how did the president prepare for this? >> we got 45 minutes in before we got a ryan budget mentioned. mitt romney made the choice to put ryan on the ticket. when we look at where the polls started to separate before the convention, right around when ryan was put on the ticket. when do the numbers on medicare and the polling start to go upside down for the republicans? when ryan is put on the ticket. yet we get 45 minutes through the debate before paul ryan is mentioned. he's the incarnation of the modern republican party which will inherit the power that you give to mitt romney since they will be governing from the house most likely. that is the key thing to remind people there is a governing of the republican party that already exists. it's like nailing gel oto the wall. no. you are tied to an actual institutional govern body which actually has a record, which actually is going to propose and vote for things that you actually put on your ticket. they are you
. i was a 23-year coal miner for many years. barack obama is wanting to do away with coal. i want to see mitt romney come back to my area and talk about call. we have a lot of people down here suffering because barack obama has shut down the coal business. i am a christian voters. i like to take the bible and lay it down and look at it and see which president i would like to vote for. i cannot find anything in the bible that i can vote for for barack obama. he does not have anything i can vote for him more. you turn over to romans chapter 1 and it talks about homosexuality and is an abomination of god. the two exodus' chapter 20 it talks about not killing babies. he is proud of it. there is no way a christian voters can vote for barack obama. host: some of the issues you just discussed were not discussed last night, or they? caller: they have been discussed in the past. i know mitt romney says he is against the homosexuality and will not vote for gay marriage. that is another thing he is against -- do not go in debt. when you become a debtor, you are a slave to whoever you borrowe
romney says the middle- class cannot afford four more years under obama. >> the people having a hard time right now are middle income americans. they are buried, they are just being crushed. >> president barack obama defended his achievements and challenged his plans saying there are not any details. >> at some point, people have to ask themselves, is the reason governor mitt romney keeping all these plans secret because they are too good? >> that he had hard time driving the debate and another comment by mitt romney has public television supporters upset. >> i'm sorry, jim, i am going to stop pbs, i like big bird and i like you too but i am not going to keep spending money on things borrow money from china. >> it is all about big bird. and coming up, we are doing some big facts where the two men actually clash. >>> a lot of people gathered at watch parties and supporters of president barack obama gathered in walnut creek and two miles away mitt romney supporters were at the republican headquarters. both sides gave their candidates high marks. >> i am thrilled with mitt romney, he is driv
prepared more than any other candidate in history. >> president obama is a very gifted speaker. the man has been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of stage. >> beth myers said president obama is widely regarded as one of the most talented political communicators in modern history. the obama camp likes to remind voters that the president hasn't had as much time to prepare for the debates because he's busy being commander in chief. when it comes to just how much debates matter, it depends. >> most often debates don't make that big a difference. very few candidates ever win an election with a debate, but quite a few have lost an election with a debate. so it can matter. >> these match-ups can produce some memorable lines. like in 1980 between then-governor ronald reagan and president jimmy carter. >> there you go again. >> and lord benson's candidate in 1908. >> i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> then there were moments to see
years since president obama took office. >> this is a choice not just between two candidates or two parties, but a choice between two fundamentally different visions for america. and today, i believe that as a nation, we are moving forward again. [ applause ] we're moving forward. cheer [ cheering and applause ] now after losing about 800,000 jobs a month within i took office -- when i took office, our businesses have now added 5.2 million new jobs over the past two and a half years. [ cheering and applause ] >> reporter: now before the debate, the president had a very slight lead over his opponent in the commonwealth. the battleground state of virginia. the question is, can he maintain that slight edge between now and november? back to you j. c.. >> thank you surae. >>> well, bedbugs are causing headaches for students at the university of maryland. the pests are spreading through parts of building 7 at the south campus commons dormitories. the company that manages the dormitories says that they were told about the problem in late september and they are working to get rid of the bug

crown winner in 45 years. this is the "cbs morning news" for thursday, october 4, good morning. good to be with you. i'm terrell brown. today both president obama and mitt romney return to the campaign trail following last night's debate in denver. as expected the economy dominated their first one on one showdown. romney came out swinging as the candidates argued tax policy, budget deficit and health care and looks like the aggressive approach may have paid off for the republican challenger. a poll shows romney made strides. we go to denver first. >> reporter: terrell, good morning. seems like mitt romney may have received that boost he was hoping for after putting the president on the defensive for much of the night. romney lauded his own accomplishments as governor of to highlight the failed promises of the obama administration. the first presidential debate started with a hand shake and a romantic moment. >> 20 years ago i became the luckyiest man onarth because michelle obama agreed to married me. >> congratulations. >> reporter: that was the last touching moment of the night. >>
to be worse off than me, why is president obama four years into his term, why is he out front? >> because people haven't been convinced that mitt romney is any better. in fact, when we take the uncommitted voters we were talking about, most of them say, the economy is not going to get better if barack obama is reelected only 14% thinks there will be an improvement in the economy if the president is reelected. only 28% think that things get better if mitt romney, he has not closed the sale things would be any different if he was president. stuart: i think your tracking poll is one of the most accurate out there. >> always great to be with you, stuart. stuart: 9:50 eastern, here is the gold report. 1,790 po 1,790.70. close to 1800 bucks. off $16. dow up, oil up, gold up. we're less than 15 minutes away from the latest read on the economy and that would be, and that comes before friday, and the big jobs report. we're going to cover all of it for you, 0 i believe, and i will give you my take on the latest bubble. it's not what you think. coming up next though, a fortune, and misfortune, and r
and many of the people in that area opposed the use earlier this year. >>> the obama campaign says don't expect any zingers from the debate. he talked about the upcoming showdown during a rally yesterday. >> what i am most concerned about is having a serious discussing about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard working americans. john mccain has debated for mitt romney and he is not expecting any major break throughs this moment. >> i can't remember whether it was the last time it was one of these comments that grabbed everybody's attention. he turned the race upside down and the debate will be campaigning in colorado today. >> well one week from today, he returns to raise some campaign cash. he will be hosting a dinner in san francisco and that dinner will be followed by a concert. they go up to $7,500 for premium seats and a chance to take a picture with the president. musical guests have not been announced. >>> there are several new laws here and coming up, the bills the governor approved on the last day to act. >>> today is the third straight
president obama took office. >> this is deadly ernst. how they can justify raising taxes to the middle class has been buried for the last 4 years. how in the lord's name can they justify it? >> now instead of focusing solely on tonight's denver the obama campaign is doing damage control even though the vice president changed had. some of the harm done once to the strong middle class republicans are taking the comments and running with it. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years have been quote buried. we agree. stop digging bile electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >>> the obama campaign is calling that an out of context attack. the numbers they say mr. biden buried line including that that reflect high unemployment rising debt and smaller paychecks over the last four years. >> newt gingrich is talking about. >> newt beginnihe went on the r what he has to do. >>> it is a clear-cut situation. romney has to be clear and factual and stick to his grounds. he has to recognize he's up against the incumbent president of the uni
not hear it. >> in response to the romney video, an obama video surfaced from 14 years ago in which he discusses market forces and competition, but also the redistribution of wealth. let's take a look. >> it is figuring out how we structure government systems that pool resources and facilitate some redistribution, because i actually believe in redistribution, at least a certain level to make sure everybody has got a shot. >> mr. sadler, do you agree with this notion of redistributing wealth from one side of americans to another site? >> i do not agree with that at all. i do not know the context, the full context of what he is saying, but that was 15 years ago. >> 14. >> 14 years ago. i do not follow that philosophy. i do not see any evidence, in spite of mr. cruz's claims, of him manipulating the public, as he suggests. >> mr. cruz, please respond -- do you believe he is saying he does not believe in redistribution? >> of course president obama believes in wealth distribution. been clear is that he supports president obama. this president has engaged in reckless fiscal policies. we hav
years of obama or 8 years of romney. you can do four years fast. eight years is a long time. >> this is the first time they have seen them side by side and they are learning a lot here. i think romney exposed a lot of obama's weaknesses. and deficiencies. so i would give the slight edge to romney. martha: wisdom come be from those gentlemen. some in the crowd did not care what either candidate had to say. one man said he already made up his mind and he voted early. that changes the die ma'am nick a lot of these cases as well. coming up, is it a new day for mitt romney? that is the big question. he did well last night but will it change the game at all? is the president not you one who needs to play catchup? most people think he will. we'll get some reaction from both campaigns how their respective candidates performed last night. that coming up a couple minutes away. bill: remember fox news? where else would you be. the next big debate is one week from today. joe biden and paul ryan scare off in danville, kentucky. we'll have complete coverage of that as we move toward next
-- >> you have been president for years. you said you would cut the deficit in half. we still have trillion dollar deficit. less cbs as we will have a trillion dollar deficit in the next four years. >> president obama interrupted again -- think romney might win a and oscar but it was untethered from the truth. the president echoed the complaint. >> i met this very spirited fellow the claim to be a romney. how but it could not have been a robbery. because the real mitt romney has been a are a country for the last year promising 5 trillion dollars in tax cuts that favors the wealthy. the fellow is state last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> leaving denver, met romney can look pleased with himself. one day does not affect the way most people intend to vote, but it means the next string of opinion polls are important. if it narrows, it suggest romney is back in the gate. but if they do not, even after a victory, then he really is in the hole. >> how important was the first debate? i spoke to apolitical blotter and polling number cruncher and the author of a new book, "the signa
with the romney-ryan plan or it's four more years of barack obama. so even obama did get some good economic news. >> these job numbers show that the president has recovered every single job lost on his watch and then some. that makes the president a net job creator. >> stephen: there it is. obama is a net job creator. so congratulations to robert baird, the guy who got the job. (laughter) but millions of americans are still looking for work. particularly low skilled workers with no high school diploma who face a 12% unemployment rate. now my heart goes out to those blue color workers. all they know how to do is make stuff while we white collar workers have the education necessary to check our e-mail. the problem is, america has lost its good manufacturing jobs to places of cheap unregulated labor like china, vietnam, and the gulag beneath disney world. faster, chakor, they're running out of mickey pretzels. now how-- how is the u.s.-- mickey. (laughter) all for mickey, please don't sue. now how, how is the u.s. supposed to compete with countries where workers toil for pennies an hour? luckily, o
. >> the obama camp says independent groups say if you cut those tax rates for everybody 20%, it costs $5 trillion over ten years, true? >> not in the least bit true. >> stephen: true, not true, who cares? (laughter) it's over ten years. romney and ryan will only be in office for eight of those. let president bachmann worry about it in 2020. that is what hindsight is for. but folks, just listen to this pit bull. >> how much would it cost. >> it's revenue neutral. >> i'm talking about the cut, we'll get to the deductions. >> the cut in tax rates is lower all american tax rate by 20%. >> how much does that cost. >> it's revenue neutral. >> stephen: okay, revenue neutral, chris. but for some reason wallace wouldn't take no answer for an answer. (laughter) jim? >> well, it's not revenue neutral unless you take away the deduction. >> let me just -- >> you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have-- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> stephen: great answer. (laughter) why-- (cheers and applause) great answer why is it a great answer? well, it would take me too lon
a 161 billion deficit and then blows out a trillion in the obama years and the affect of all of those policiless had taken place. and the big change if you look at the trajectory of government is a massive spending increase. he took us to a new level . 24 percent of the economy consumed boy the federal government. historically it was under 20. >> if he wins reelection we have fur more years and trillion worth of new deficit going on the deficit. >> yes 10 trillion . i don't know how we are going to pay for this . inheritance and his successor is going it inherit a problem. >> gretchen: this is before obama care? >> thos a great point. we had massive stimulus and everything and category of spending going up yet, the big bills of obama care comes later and hasn't showed up yet. and even the democrats who run the congressional budget office said that will cost 1.7 tril yen if a decade. >> gretchen: coming up next. tragedy trikes in hollywood. katie perry exboyfriend now dead after murdering his land lady and dying misterously. >> writing a letter and you will not believe what got him in
% in three years. and going higher under obama care. awful situation. gas prices up 106% since mr. obama took office. a complete disationer. national debt up $5.4 trillion under the president and going higher. a catastrophe and while salaries for workers are flat or down, corporate profits are up, signaling more economic imbalance in america. now, it used to be that economic steps like those would doom, doom an incumbent president. that's not happening this year. barack obama is not even conceding that his policies haven't worked. he is essentially saying they will work if you give me four more years. millions of americans seem to be on board with that as the president's poll numbers are higher than most expected. the rasmussen daily tracking poll today has mr. obama up by 1%, 47%, to 46% over mitt romney. in the 11 swing states that will decide the election, rasmussen has the race tied 46% 46%. 3% remain undecided in the swing states. that's much closer than most of the other polling which talking points exposed earlier this week as being heavily weighted to the democratic side. we here are
trillion. doesn't pretend to balance the budget and $1 trillion a year after year. obama set the bar pretty low. we also 6 unemployment for those 25-55 at the lowest rate we've seen in 30 years. so the bar has been set low but i believe the country deserves a much brighter path. what we'll hear governor romney is reducing the outrageous growth and spending and frankly rolling back the regulatory price tag that this economy has been absorbing. you see an increase of about 279% in the number of major versus the bush. each of a price tag hundred million dollars a year. >> heather: i want to give you a chance to respond. president obama he is the incumbent president in this race. let's take a look at economic numbers. since president obama took office in january of 2009 the u.s. government has implemented more fiscal stimulus and monetary intervention than ever before. g.d.p. has slowed from 2.4% to 12% in 2011 and only 1.6% in first half of 2012. first three that recovery has added 6.7% to g.d.p. and unemployment stuck above 8% and as you heard nancy, 25% of americans age 25-55 still need a jo
and see what we can find. this is what the country looked like in 2009. barack obama's first full year in office. every state that looks brown out here is a state where they were losing jobs at the time. some of them very bad. look at ohio over here. 10.6% unemployment. gradually over the next few years jobs come in education and health care and business services and retail. every state that is lighter in color where they are no longer losing jobs or, in some cases, gaining jobs. ohio, 7.2% unemployment now. that is better than the national average. the bureau of labor statistics says to make that happen, we, indeed, had to create a lot of jobs. how many? by their count? 4.4 million so far. but here is what is not mentioned much. 4.3 million were lost during the bad days. so the net gain is only about 125,000 and that falls short of the president's claim that he created 5 million jobs. it's just a little bit too much of a stretch. we have to call that claim false. even though many democrats will say in a heartbeat, look. he inherited a bad economy from george bush. many voters agree wi
people have been dealing with this obama economy over the last four years. i think we need to talk to the american people about how we can do better with his path to prosperity. >> for weeks, the two candidates have painstakingly prepared. now the real test. >> the message that comes out of the debate will be important. is it is basically a stalemate, i do not think it changes the opinion. whereas if the message is that romney did really well, that will reach and have a persuasive effect. >> the debate will be split up into several set -- segments. we have heard that the president has won the coin toss, which means he is the first question. >> thank you. in addition to the debate, both campaigns have announced new debate with sites where they will be responding to opponent claims in real time. and you can download our commitment 2012 app for your coverage. you can tune in to watch the debate tonight. it begins at 9:00. >> ok, cue the dream sequence. a chance for orioles magic tonight against the tampa bay rays. pete gilbert joins us live from st. petersburg. this is its. >> you are
. that was the first calendar year president obama was president. after looking athose numbers he decided to do t sur. th tevf ene was looking at when he sent more troops at the end of that year. now, three years later after the surge has ended, this is the level of attacks in this calendar year in 2012. so over 2010 and 2010 during the surge, right, wendured this leofmyti - that's during the surge. we endured that level of enemy-initiated attacks. now after the surge, after all of that blood and treasure and sacrifice, we have a new level which is higher than when we started. so that's for emy-initiated attacks. here's the same number for executed ied attacks. so bombs in afghanistan, right? here was the rather outrageously high numbers of bombs in afghanistan in 2009 when president obama was making his decision about the surge. these are ieds. here's the level now. here's what we went through during the surge years. the interim years. that's 2010 and 2011. so, you know, it's possible to spin this as, oh, look, 2012 is slightly better than last year, looks like it might be, right? that wasn't the po
's recent use of a 14-year-old clip out of context from obama using the word redistribution. that too four pinocchios. but we're not done yet. romney claimed obama raised healthcare costs by $2400 per person. that also, four pinocchios. rerepeatedly claims obama went on an apology tour after taking office. he did not. four pinocchios. romney claimed that 100,000 auto industry jobs have been don't even get me started on that one. i'll just say what the post said. four pinocchios, false. by the way, there's a lot more. the man cannot help himself. now, i would call him a serial liar but that would probably give serial liars a bad name. let's look beyond the hypocrisy and think about team romney's calling the president a liar in advance of the debates. what is that strategy all about? mostly it is about working the refs the media so the media is primed to listen for any falsehoods from the president during the debate. now, as you know, debates are all about managing expectations. remember that george w. bush did "better th
probably in obama's third year. she is 79. she is often said she wants to search use 82 because that's when louis brandeis, her idol, served until. not funny, that's true. and some people ask why didn't she quit earlier to make sure that obama bashing she's a human being. and she's a widow. and she loves what she does and she's good at it. she's got the brains and the health did it. she's particularly and members of for new college, elena kagan. and her choice is to be the senior liberal on the supreme court, or go sit by herself in her apartment near watergate. what would you do? [laughter] so i think she's going to stay. now, if obama is reelected, and it's looking that way, i don't think, i don't, i was not pandering. just making another one of my actual predictions.
